“Consistently good sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

A really nice, reliable sushi restaurant. The sashimi rated 5 stars but the special maki we ordered was over sweet with a peanut sauce - could have done without. Everything we ordered was wonderfully fresh, and just the right temperature. Too cold or too warm can spoil the meal. The restaurant is HUGE, but still had perfect intimacy since everything was broken up in smaller rooms. The price was affordable for sushi. We spent $100 for a boat, 2 sides, and a bottle of wine. NOT bad for sushi! The staff was attentive and very friendly.

“An annual tradition!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Fugakyu has got to be one of my favourite sushi restaurants. It is an annual tradition to get a group of friends together for supper whenever I come to town.

Service is attentive, the sushi is great and the prices are reasonable for what is delivered. It's not a cheap night out, but nor do you leave feeling 'had'. Good value for money.

The restaurant can get a bit loud so our preference is really a private room. At some restaurants, this means you get forgotten about, but not at Fugakyu. They are attentive without being irritating. Servers are also well informed about menu items and can answer any questions thrown at them.

I always get the bento box 'cause it's just so darn good! And I'm always thrilled when I get seated at a private table. Excellent food&beautiful decor. Pamper yourself and impress your friends.

“Amazing and consistently good sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

They run this place like a machine. Always get it right, it always tastes the same. Make reservations even though this is one of the biggest restaurants Ive eaten at its always full.
Everything is good from basics like dragon maki to katsu, teppanyaki, yakitori and amazing sashimi. Its very vegetarian friendly- Idaho maki and if you eat eggs the tamago is good.

“Great sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We've been here a couple of times, and the sushi is just fabulous! Very fresh tasting and high quality. Love the shrimp tempura, and the 'pinetato' rolls (grilled pineapple and sweet potatoes!). The spicy tuna rolls were yummy. The menu is immense, but the servers are very helpful in explaining each section. The prices are reasonable, and there is a full bar. We will definitely be back again!
